I appreciate the sentiments expressed here as I share them too but as I mentioned before it's likely best to keep expectations low.

As much as I love the ride I do hope they keep the same story line but update with modern technology. Static dummies should give way to projection screens that really pop out at you. Iím just hoping for a good mix of storytelling and modern effects.

I would be willing to bet the new ride has very little if anything in common with the old ride

Here's a sign of the changes at HFE.  We used to speak in hopeful language; now we expect less from them.

I remain hopeful, but I am expecting sparkle without substance.

^ I know we all want the new ride to be very similar to the old ride.
Not everyone even knows what "the old ride" was, because it has changed over the years. Not just the scening and effects, but the route itself.

Some changes were for obvious safety reasons (after that horrible accident), others to speed through-put, and some because changes were quicker and cheaper than repairs.

If anyone goes to the city any time soon, can you snap some photos of the progress of the "mystery building"?

It will be sad to see FITH 1.0 go, but very interesting to see how they do FITH 2.0.

The simi trucks really help to give it scale.

I donít believe any of the Pumpkin wall has been removed. You can see the supports for the Pumpkins lettering sign on top of the wall still there in the top center.

I was in park and while watching mystic river refill, I was standing near Fire in the hole. If you really look that original building is very large also, much bigger than you think. I think its not as large as the new building but pretty close overall.

my two cents

The new building is almost twice as tall.  Itís wider and itís deeper. 
Itís going to be a bigger rideÖ much bigger

Ok.  Maybe it was just the angle

Those are some great pictures..  love the Semi trailer, just sitting there.  Looks like a Demo trailer..  they may be throwing excess steel parts into it for disposal..
